Patents are considered essential when they are determined to have at least one independent claim that would necessarily and unavoidably infringed (in the absence of a license) by the practice of the MPEG-H 3D Audio Standard.

If informed by the independent evaluator that the submitted patent is essential to the MPEG-H 3D Audio Standard, the submitter is expected to participate in the MPEG-H 3D Audio Licensing Committee and the patent licensing program.
